Her research focuses on understanding how fungal mycelia behave in the natural world, climate change effects on fungi, antagonistic interactions between fungi, and development of fungal communities in wood. She is currently studying the fascinating communities of fungi and other organisms that rot the centres of old trees. She is a prolific author having co-authored “Fungal Decomposition of Wood” and “The Fungi”, her most recent (2021) being “Fungi and Trees: their Complex Relationships”, and the children’s book “Humongous Fungus”.
